      Thanks man. I also found someone (Tomandante) that lives in Wastonville and says he will drive by the best address I have and the area around it. 1.5 years ago it was just sitting there, hopefully it still is...CROSS YOUR FINGERS!!!

      When the PO told me that, I was like can your spell that out? Just couldn't believe it was sold in Watsonville, CA. I honestly though it would still be the TX, but sounds like I have a 1,724 mile or 28 hrs road trip in the future (According to Mapquest.com, which I have beaten several times)....

      I called the PO again that sold the car in Watsonville. I'm trying to get more info on the exact location (Color of house, behind a fence, etc), but everytime she says I'll have to ask her mother (She's the one that seen it last) and never calls me back . I feel like I'm soo close and if they would just help a little I would be closer. I'm not asking the world or anything (Heck I told her I would give her a reward). I guess they don't care nor like money!! I wish I had enough money to fly up there and scout it out, but that could be a week, just can't leave everything behind like that. Hopefully Tomandante will give me some good news soon. Days like this just make me want to buy a local VW and rebuild it as a rep and call it a day. I've worked so hard with so much time and money has been invested.

      Still no luck, but in the mean time I bought my dad a 1961 Impala. When I was young that's the only car he use to talk about for that was the year he was born (Not his favorite car, but always wanted one). So if I can't find the Beetle for my mother, I have a backup plan. I bought the Impala as it needs work, so we can work on it over time and the memories will be made and the car is registered in my name, so there's no way my brother can sell it again!!

      Don't give up! This is so interesting and cool. I found my dads first car.. a 67 hard top... But the owners won't sell. Made it into a little 12 sec drag car

      Well I haven't heard from anyone in the Watsonville area, but I got some good news today. My work will be sending me to Edwards Airforce Base in CA for 2.5 months. Watsonville is only 5 hours away and I could drive up there friday after work and spend the whole weekend looking for it. I got about 8 - 9 weekends if I need them to find it... It would be nice if someone already spotted it, then all I got to do is hire a transport driver to meet me there and load it up.
